DuPont™ Tyvek® Labels
Do more. Do it better. Do it for less.
That's what happens when you make DuPont™ Tyvek® the substrate of choice for all your printing that calls for memorable graphics, unique strength, a distinctive texture—and an affordable way to achieve them.
DuPont™ Tyvek® is a spunbonded olefin family of tough, durable products that are stronger than paper and more cost-effective and versatile than fabrics. Made from high-density polyethylene fibers, it is an extremely versatile material, offering a balance of physical characteristics that combine the best properties of paper, film and cloth.
Spunbonded olefin is formed by a continuous process creating very fine 0.5-10 micron fibers. (For comparison, a human hair is about 75 microns in cross section.) These non-directional fibers are first spun and then bonded together by heat and pressure, without binders.
Both Tyvek® and Tyvek® Brillion® are strong, lightweight, flexible, smooth, low-linting, opaque and resistant to water, chemicals, abrasion and aging. Their unique combination of properties makes the Tyvek® brands of protective materials ideal for a broad range of applications.
DuPont™ Tyvek® Brillion® is also a spunbonded olefin, in this case flash spun from high-density polyethylene. That creates small-diameter fibers which are then thermally calendered by heat and pressure for a tough, durable sheet structure with excellent tensile and tear strength. This unique manufacturing process results in a substrate with a high degree of whiteness, superior smoothness, and excellent bar code readability.
